Increased spending on fast food, particularly by consumers in developed regions, is likely to be crucial for the market progression. In the U.S., this surge in expenditure has been influenced by the recession as people are opting for quick and inexpensive ready-to-eat meals over home-cooked food as they are considered an economical option. The emergence of convenience foods as a staple has increased fast-food restaurant sales in American countries, resulting in huge demand for frozen bakery products for quick preparation.

Mounting preference for conventional fresh baked products may hinder product demand

Most frozen food products have garnered a negative image due to the preservatives and toxic substances they contain. Frozen food is perceived by consumers as being less nutrient-dense than fresh food due to the extensive manufacturing processes and preservatives. This has increased the demand for conventional fresh baked products, significantly hampering the frozen bakery market revenue. However, manufacturers are focusing on developing frozen bakery foods created with nutritious ingredients and without harmful additives in order to overcome this limitation.

As per product, the frozen bakery market from the fully baked segment is poised to exhibit robust growth at 6% CAGR through 2032, attributed to the quick preparation of these items, which allows bakers and restaurants to establish an efficient supply chain. Furthermore, the mounting demand for bakery products among health-conscious consumers has increased the sales of fully baked goods such as gluten-free bakery items, wholegrain or multigrain bread, and products made of organic ingredients. The frozen pizza market value is likely to cross USD 37.9 billion by 2032.

By end-user, the online channels segment will grow at 7.5% CAGR during the forecast timeline, due to the increasing sales of frozen bakery goods through online distribution channels resulting from the COVID-19 impact on consumer purchasing behavior. Moreover, a growing number of supportive policies and initiatives that help frozen bakery product manufacturers to launch online storefronts and increase their sales are likely to propel the market demand. For instance, the American Frozen Food Institute (AFFI), a U.S. trade association for the frozen food sector is designed to provide tools to assist the development of the frozen food & beverage business.

Impact of COVID-19 pandemic

The COVID-19 outbreak impeded the expansion of the frozen food industry in the initial stages. Grocery shop inventories suffered due to supply chain interruptions and rising demand. Many restaurants and eateries had to shut operations to protect personnel against the infection, which also resulted in a drop in sales of ready-to-eat food goods. Moreover, high consumer reliance on home-cooked meals lowered the consumption of fast-food items, which declined the consumption of frozen bakery foods. However, declining cases and increased emphasis on hygiene and sanitization are likely to be profitable for the sector in the future.
